Product Testimony

“From the moment I came across this company, I was immediately drawn to it. There is something special about Doughnuts & Deadlifts. DNDL is more than a brand. It's more than a logo. It's a movement that brings together two great things; fitness and doughnuts. I am so honored to be a part of this team and to wear the DNDL logo.”

 

Favorite Movement: I have two; Squats and Deadlifts.

Least Favorite Movement: Although I love lifting altogether, my least favorite movement would have to be bench press. Long arms and bench press... that's a no, no.

    Quick Biography 

    I am 24 years young, born in Boston, Massachusetts but raised in Baltimore, Maryland. I have my Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience and I am currently in graduate school studying Exercise Physiology and Public Health at Northeastern University. In addition to school, I do cell biology research. From the moment I discovered powerlifting, I knew that this was the sport for me. I'm extremely thankful of what I've accomplished so far as a powerlifter and I can't wait to see what the future holds.
